Mox Emerald Discussion

First of all, Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh just seems like a mistake, did you mean Chandra, Torch of Defiance?

Also 5 Titan-esque creatures seems like too many, especially because you don't have much acceleration. I know grindy decks can go long, so its nice to have some beef at the top, but that seems like too many. Maybe cut 2 or 3.

Demonic Tutor is nice, but it doesn't really do that much for you to warrant having 4 points. If you can swing it, I think that having Mox Jet and Mox Emerald would help you more than the Tutor and Strip Mine, but I know that's big ask.

Power aside, I think your deck would benefit from having some more acceleration, with more than half your deck being 3 and 4 drops.

I know a lot of Highlander is seasoning to taste, but I'd try to work in Fatal Push and/or Flame Slash, because they're good and lowers your curve some. I'm also a mark for Flametongue Kavu and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, maybe over Bloodline Keeper.

Thank you for your time and your detailed answer! It has been very helpful.

My question regarding the mana elfs came up, because I am playing with the german highlander banlist (http://www.highlandermagic.de)

Our meta is diverse with different and changing archetypes, but I haven't seen a GB Rock around so far. Anyhow, I currently face Ux Control (Izzet, Azorius) and RDW in approx. every third match. Overall I have quite good results against the creature style midrange decks and can beat RDW. Now I want to work on the weaknesses.

Mox Emerald, Mox Jet, Sol Ring, Sensei's Divining Top and Mind Twist - which recently you put in for Deathgorge Scavenger - are banned. On the other hand I include Demonic Tutor.

Running one or two mana elfs seemed to me like an okay replacement. However, I am not sure if they'll stay longer. I just don't see replacement options for the Mox's at the moment.

I don't consider Chrome Mox and Mox Diamond, because I feel like the speed isn't really worth the card disadvantage in this archetype. I have tried different numbers of mana elfs. These work better in midrange creature decks (like Jund, Abzhan, 4c Goodstuff), where curving into 4-drop in turn 3 and then protecting your board state is the key (or in elfball decks etc.).

Since I want to survive and win through the end game, the remaining options are second to Wall of Roots and Sylvan Caryatid which provide better protection.

If you have a good advise on the replacement question, I'll be happy to hear it!

I'll try Praetor's Grasp, thanks for the suggestion. I think it's more versatile then, for example, Chalice of the Void, which I was planning to test to shut down combo decks.

Everyone keeps telling me it's crazy not to play Deathrite Shaman, but in the end I came to the same conclusion. I prefer more solid and reliable ramp, lifegain and even graveyard hate. Some players add ABU duals just for using the flexible options of the Shaman, but I haven't really missed him so far. Personal preferences, I guess.

I can also confirm your rating of the planeswalkers, even if still kinda undecided. Vraska, Relic Seeker is out for me, too. Nissa, Vital Force was okay, but mostly ended using the +1 ability with no additional board presence. Garruk Wildspeaker is better in the previously mentioned midrange creature style decks. Sadly, he makes tokens with the -1 ability, so still unsure about him. Since the purpose of Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath is creating sustainable board presence, maybe Grave Titan could fit the role. He is one mana slower, but it's 10 power for 6 mana and provides a more aggressive strategy. After three rounds, Grave Titan and Zombies have attacked for 42 life, Ob Nixilis for 15.

Have you tested Ugin, the Spirit Dragon? He could possibly fit, since he provides great board control, can immediately turn around and win the game, compared to Karn Liberated, who is kinda win more.

I am curious to see what changes you'll make in the future.

Last but not least, I will most likely include Thrun, the Last Troll to improve the matchups against Ux control decks. Unfortunately, he has no direct ETB impact. Still, Thrun is hard to handle for other control decks and he was okay for me so far.

FUTURE CHANGES TO BE MADE:

Reasoning:

I am cutting lands due to an excess of flood in test games.

  • Flametongue Kavu has been a tough card to evaluate for a long time. It's very good, but can be a dead card, especially if I don't end up hitting land 4, which is frequent enough to consider. It is the only 4CMC card that can be dead in my hand, and at top-of-curve I don't find that acceptable. It's better in BigRed and midrange decks that run red, this list has been refined to a low-to-the-ground aggro list, in which the evasion and anti-lifegain effect the Dinosaur offers are more useful.

Hi!

Thanks for visiting my page. I started playing MTG in 1993, when it had just arrived in my country of birth. My best friend at the time pointed it out to me, and told me he only wanted to start playing it, if he had at least one friend who played it too.

So we each bought our very first magic cards together; an unlimited starter-set and five unlimited booster packs. I remember how excited I was when we unpacked these cards. Not that either of us knew anything about the game yet, or what these cards were supposed to be worth. As a matter of fact, value of the cards themselves wasn't on our mind at all. We just wanted cool cards to play the game with. It turned out my starter set contained a Berserk and a Mox Emerald. My friend was just as lucky, getting an Ancestral Recall.

My friend and I kept playing MTG for years. Since money was tight, we always bought a booster-box of cards together when a new set came out. I always got to keep the white, green and red cards, while he kept the blue, black and artifact cards. Not that we didn't constantly borrow each other's cards; but in terms of actual ownership things were pretty well divided. Valuable lands were always distributed evenly. It was a pretty neat arrangement; usually quite fair. I also remember that back then, we used to play for ante against other people. That was a lot of fun, although I was a bit distraught when one day I lost my Diamond Valley to another player.

We kept playing until Mirage came out, which was about 1998 I think. The reason for this discontinuation was very unfortunate. One day, when I was away from home, my mom decided she wanted to help me pack for the move to my very first appartment (I was going to college the next week, so it was time for me to leave my parents' home). My mom had no idea what MTG was, decided it was junk, and threw everything into the trash. Sigh, parents, can't live with em, can't live without em ... I didn't discover this until the moving day itself, by which time it was too late. Needless to say, I was quite upset. It stopped me from playing MTG for a long, long time.

In 2012 I met the woman of my dreams. She loves playing games, mostly board-games but also computer games and, lo-and-behold, card games :) She'd never played MTG, but because of her gaming enthusiasm, I figured it could be fun to restart my old hobby with her, and so I (we) did. This turned out to be a tremendous success! We now have a MTG collection together that we're very proud of, spanning cards of many different sets. Our favorite format (the only one we play these days) is EDH/Commander. Our collection has thusfar allowed us to build almost forty different decks in basically every color combination, of which currently a portion is shown on this site. It's my intention to eventually post all our ideas here, as well as our card collection.

In light of the recent MTGO Commander Banlist announcement, I thought to ask everyone what the banlist would look like if they made it.

The following proposed banlist is my opinion of what the banlist should look like. You will see 3 criteria for what makes a card unfit for the format, and a list of what cards could be banned based on them:
